Is David Seymour a friend of Israel?

After the National Party shafted Israel at the UN a number of us here on Whaleoil expressed our disgust. Some of us asked what other political parties we could give one or both of our votes to in order to show both our support for Israel and our condemnation of what the National Party has done. I decided to contact the leaders of Act, New Zealand First and the Maori Party as well as the Labour Party. I didn’t bother with the Green Party as their anti-Israel stance was made abundantly clear earlier this year. The Conservative Party currently lacks a leader so I had no one to contact.

The first leader to respond to my request for comment was Labour leader, Andrew Little. The second leader to respond was Act Leader, David Seymour whose response was delayed by poor internet coverage. I am very impressed considering that most politicians are on holiday and unavailable to media yet both leaders took the time out to reply.Until yesterday the New Zealand mainstream media hadn’t even bothered to cover the story.Whaleoil is the only media outlet so far to ask the leaders if they and their parties are friends of Israel.

 

I sent a response but obviously it was not sent because I was in weak internet coverage (tethering from my phone)

I am pro Israel because I believe that democracy and individual freedom are more important than the will of the mob. As goes Israel, so goes freedom for us all. On the current topic you have to look at the resolution itself and the U.S. Ambassador’s speech to the Security Council. It is possible to be pro Israel and yet question the settlements. What is dumbfounding is why New Zealand chose to take a leading role. With the Saudi Sheep schmossle and now this, McCully can’t go fast enough.
